RULE CHANGES COMING INTO FORCE: 48 HOURS TO GO

A short, but timely, reminder that new rules come into force on the 6th April 2016.

These include:

  • No costs budgeting where the claim is brought on behalf of a child.
  • Normally no costs budgeting when the claimant has limited or impaired life expectancy.
  • The costs budget must be filed “not later than 21 days before the first case management conference”. 
  • An agreed budget discussion report to be filed no later than 7 days before the first case management conference.
  • The use of only the first page of Precedent H where the party’s budgeted costs do not exceed £25,000 or the stated value on the claim is less than £50,000.
  • A requirement that the bill of costs shows each phase of the costs budget.
